15th December 2016 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Colombian Air Force has ordered an air traffic control (ATC) tower simulator system (TSS) from Adacel Systems, the company announced on 12 December.

The MaxSim simulator will provide air force air traffic controllers with a realistic hands-on training system to achieve and maintain certifications.

The TSS - with speech recognition system - will have four trainee positions for local control, ground control, flight data and radar control; auxiliary information data displays; and an out-the-window tower visual system made up of seven high-definition displays.

The system’s comprehensive Instructor Operating Station will provide instructors with complete pseudo pilot functionality and the capability to control and modify the running scenario. Scenario generation tools will allow users to create, edit and save training scenarios. The system will accommodate both individual and team training in the control tower disciplines.

The MaxSim simulator will be deployed to Bogota, Colombia. Instructor and operator training on the system functions will be conducted by Adacel following delivery.
